Summer Swimming and Swelling

This summer I really put my locks to the test.  Due to swimming lessons and invitations from friends, we have done a great deal of swimming.  I was curious to see how my relaxed ends would fair.   I have continued to treat them like the locks.  The relaxed ends lightened because of the chlorinated water; unfortunately, the locks did not.   This summer I have finally seen seen some changes in the appearance of my locks.  They have started to swell.  In order to keep my hair neat, I have primarily trimmed my ends only to maintain my style and to alleviate bunching.  I started with the back and continued to trim in order to blend the style. However,because I started with relaxed ends, the balls on the ends of my locks are fairly large.  I hope to cut those off once all of my relaxer is cut off.
